Dog engine? I just passed half of the traffic on I-70 eastbound Floyd Hill and reached the top at 55mph. On 35" Swampers and a hot day, no less. The 3FE is NOT a dog engine. But then, you already knew that, didn't you Ige?
Before that, it was big fun today wheeling Bill Moore Lake and then down Red Elephant Hill with Alex Bingham, son of former Rising Sunner James Bingham and his friend Will who now wrenches at Slee Off Road.
